Description: Florida Hotel Cuba
The Florida Hotel is located in the center of Havana on the corner of Obispo Street, surrounded by shops, art galleries and museums. The architectural beauty of the building, built in 1836, together with the distinction of the service, makes this place one of the most privileged in the city of Old Havana. Discover the History of Hotel Florida The Hotel Florida is surrounded by multiple stories of illustrious families, such as that of the counts of San Ignacio and Casa More. The building that this Hotel occupies today in Old Havana was inaugurated in 1885. Adapted to the tastes of the American and European markets, it became one of the most recognized in the Cuban capital. In this building, which hosted the functions of a hotel until 1952, the British Club of Havana was also located in the 1930s. The Odalisque, an art deco statue of a semi-naked woman, welcomes newcomers, who find themselves in front of a beautiful Spanish-style interior patio, with bare stone columns, lamps from the period and a stained glass window by the teacher Rosa María de the Terga. Florida Hotel Decoration The rooms contrast with the majesty of the public spaces of the Hotel in Old Havana. Beam ceilings and period furniture, original and imitations, recall Cuba's colonial past. Most have balconies overlooking a street that is revealed to be one of the main arteries of Havana, one of the busiest and halfway to the cultural center of the oldest part of the city.

The Florida Hotel, in Havana's historic heart, was turned into a hotel in 1885, combining European and US comfort. It is on Obispo St., a pedestrian street lined with art galleries and museum, an additional attraction that highlights the establishment's options, including easy access to such sites as the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi, the Car Museum, the museums of Archeology and Science, and the House of Cigars. The Florida Hotel is characterized by its silent atmosphere and colonial-style decoration consisting of iron lamps, light-colored furniture and a cozy patio.
“Fantistic architecture, terrible hotel. ”
If your love of architecture allows you to overlook the fact that this is terrible hotel then this is the hotel for you. The building is magnificent but cannot on its own make up for the worst service and food we experienced in our 4 weeks touring Cuba. The bathroom was dirty, the air conditioning filled the room with a large puddle of water, and the food was inedible. From check in to check out this was an unpleasant experience. The management of this hotel should be ashamed of themselves for allowing basic standards of cleanliness and service to fall so low. It shames the building and the fantastic people of Cuba who strive to welcome tourists to their country.
